Pandaland II

Population6.702 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Black and White Dynasty of Pandaland II is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.702 billion Pandas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bamboo Forest. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 3,188 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 475,819 Bamboos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, concussed Giraffeball players cannot remember their lineup position, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals". Crime is totally unknown. Pandaland II's national animal is the Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bambooism.

Pandaland II is ranked 205,926th in the world and 6,408th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
